I am not convinced that the licence issue is resolved.

  • cvxopt is a standard package in Sage (if that would matter).
  • SPKG.txt claims the licence to be "multiple licenses: GPLv2, GPLv3, GNU Lesser General Public License, v2.1" when in fact it is simply GPLv3+. It is true that parts of cvxopt have different licences, but the package as a whole is GPLv3+. In any case, this has to be changed in SPKG.txt

I posted to sage-devel about this.

    initial v106  
    11We are shipping an *ancient* version of cvxopt in sage.  It's worse than Debian shipping sage-3.0.5!

    3 Note that upgrading cvxopt should be fairly easy, since basically nothing in Sage depends on cvxopt.
